Vice Admiral William S. Sims, Commander, United States Naval Forces Operating in European Waters, to Lieutenant Commander Allan S. Farquhar, Commander, U.S.S. Sterett

June 15th.1918.

My dear Farquar,

          I have been reading with much interest the reports of your recent fine submarine hunts.1 They are certainly just the right stuff, and they deserve to succeed in giving you a couple of scalps. When the hydrophone appliances reach a further degree of perfection I have no doubt you will bring in some of these Huns.

          I felt quite sure that my action in requesting your detail for this duty would be amply justified.

Very sincerely yours,
